Tampa, FL. (February 9, 2021) – VanTrust Real Estate, LLC, a full service real estate development company, announced today that it has signed leases with three tenants at SkyCenter One, a nine-story, 270,000-square-foot office building located at Tampa International Airport. In addition, VanTrust, the developer of SkyCenter One, will open a regional Tampa office in the building.
The other signed tenants are Avison Young, a leading commercial real estate services company who manages leasing for SkyCenter One; J.E. Dunn, one of the nation’s top commercial and industrial construction companies who is building the project; and the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority.
“The signing of these tenants, including VanTrust for our Tampa regional office, speaks volumes about SkyCenter One’s location and amenities,” said G. John Carey, executive vice president at VanTrust. “SkyCenter One is ideal for those companies looking for a central Tampa Bay location, easy access to the airport, tremendous nearby resturants and retail, beautiful outdoor work space, and much more.”
All four tenants will occupy in excess of 125,000 square feet. The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority will occupy three floors for the Authority’s employees and airport operations.
The Class A+ office tower is a part of the second phase of the airport’s master plan to develop the SkyCenter area into a mixed use project in order to increase visitor capacity. This 35-acre site located near the Rental Car Center will also be home to a hotel and retail space. In addition, an elevated pedestrian walkway will connect SkyCenter One’s adjacent atrium to the SkyConnect train station at the Rental Car Center. Other amenities will include a conference center, 5,000 square foot fitness center, 4,000 square foot café and access to multipurpose trails that will eventually join with Tampa Bay’s regional trail network.
With completion scheduled for June 2021, SkyCenter One is designed for LEED Platinum Certification, the highest ranking issued by the U.S. Green Building Council.
